Cute Crocheted Hats
Here's a collection of hats I've made in the past. Most of these were made before I wrote down patterns for my work. So, rather than cite a pattern, I walk you through how I crocheted each hat.
If you are just learning how to crochet, or prefer to use patterns, rather than freehand crochet--I list a bunch of my patterns at the bottom of the page and will be updating this whenever I've written a new hat pattern.
Hope you enjoy!

Crab Stitch/Reverse Crochet
Animal hats aren't that difficult to make if you have some crochet experience. For all hats you'll need to start off with a basic beanie cap and add ear flaps if you desire.
Now come the ears!
For bunny ears crochet multiple rows the desired thickness of the ear. Continue crocheting rows the same way you would crochet a scarf. When you're close to reach your desired length, begin to decrease your rows, so you ears end in a point. Then crab stitch around the sides of the ears. Fold over the bottom of the ears, sew it folded, then sew it on to your hat.
For bear ears, start crocheting as you would with a beanie had, making the circle. When you have about 16 stitches in the round (more or less), stop increasing and start crocheting around until you have a decent sized ear. Keep track of how many rows you crocheted so you can repeat with the other side. Fold the ear in, so it make a concave little curve and sew the opening shut. Then pin and stitch on to your hat.
For a frog hat, do the same as you did with the bear, but in a nice froggy colour. Then add a crocheted or black felt circle to the "ears" you've made and embroider a face.
If you would like to make cat ears or a Hello Kitty hat, check out my pattern on how to crochet cat ears. Rather than walk you through the process, I actually have a written pattern you can use to make the ears.

Loop Stitch (used for mane)
To make this hat I first made a beanie cap in yellow and added ear flaps. To make the lion ears I crocheted two circles.
Then, in brown, I created a loop stitch mane around the front of the hat and along the sides of the ear flaps. I finished by adding brown ties on either side of the ear flaps.

How to Make Pom Poms
Pom poms are really easy to make if you don't already know how.
- cardboard or something firm and flat, should be the length of what you'd like the width of your pom pom to be.
Just wrap the yarn around your piece of cardboard several times. The more you wrap it, the fuller your pom pom will be.
Then cut the yarn looped over the edges of the cardboard.
Tie a longer piece of yarn TIGHTLY in the center of all the loose strands. Make sure to knot it a couple of times so it stays in place.
Fluff it out and you have your pom pom. You can use the longer strand to stitch it on to things.
